and never miss one evah!

Saturday at Noon EST on DaTechGuy on DaRadio we talk the 2nd Egyptian Revolution and the Muslim Brotherhood

Ray Hanna from the Boston Chapter of Act for America will join us to talk about the Revolt, what it means for Egypt and the Coptic Christians who are already paying the price.

In the second hour Author and Islam Expert Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch joins the conversation talking Egypt,  the Muslim Brotherhood and I’m sure he’ll have more than a few words about the outrageous behavior of the English Government banning him and Pam Geller’s entry to the country.

And of course we’ll have a few things to say about his new book Not Peace but a sword that you can buy here:

UPDATE: Just got the good word that Pam Geller Author of The Post American Presidency The Obama Administration’s war on America (talk about a book ahead of its time) will be joining us in Hour 1 as well, talk about being loaded for bear!

That book was released 3 years ago on Monday, at the time the left considered the whole idea something of a joke, today given all we’ve seen from the IRS to the NSA it’s practically prophetic.

We’d love to hear from you 888-9-fedora (888-933-3672) or tweet me at datechguyblog

And of course listen live either nationwide on FTR Radio

or via our Tunein Stream for the Money Matters Radio Network

Or listen on one of our terrestrial stations

WBNW Concord Ma 1120 AM FLAGSHIP

WPLM 1390 AM Plymouth MA

WESO 970 AM Southbridge MA

And if you miss the show at Noon don’t worry you can hear the replay at 11 PM Saturday night (but of course can’t call in).

Let’s spend a couple of hours together.

They say half a paycheck is better than none, but I’m still short of even half a paycheck this week.

8 more readers kicking in $20 will get that first full paycheck since May.  But one more at least get me half way there with just over a day to do.

Any aid in getting closer would be much appreciated.

I’ve been hard on the British Home office over the exclusion of Pam Geller and Robert Spencer from England as an attack on one basic freedoms to the point where I’ve asked to be included in their exclusion from England.

But there is at least one bright side to the story. Pat Condell in his latest video commented on the British Government’s actions saying in part:

Robert Spencer is an Islamic Scholar he knows the Koran better than most Muslims…He and Pamela Geller have been banded from Britain because they tell the truth and because the truth is a threat to Islam therefore the truth according to the UK government is not conducive to the public good.

Here is the full video

Pam Geller is a Jew, Robert Spencer is a Devout Catholic and Pat Condell…

…he is one of the most well-known and most viewed atheists on the internet.

So the British home office can take heart, they have Jews, Christians and Atheists on the same side, they are now officially a uniter! Cue the music:

And if you want to hear more from Robert Spencer Author of the new book Not Peace but a Sword he will join us tomorrow on DaTechGuy on DaRadio Noon till 2 On the Money Matters Radio Network (WBNW 1120 , WESO 970, WPLM 1390) and FTR Radio. And remember the show is replayed at 11 PM EST on Saturday if you miss it the first time.

The full paycheck question moved forward only 8 readers kicking in $20 needed for that full paycheck but the quest remains elusive

You can change this if you wish and I would ask you to do so.

Hit DaTipJar below and lets see if we can get this weeks paycheck filled a day early

A while back I introduced you to Gehad El-Haddad

El haddad 1

and noticed something interesting about his twitter stream

doesn’t it strike you as odd that you have to go down 5 pages before you find a single tweet in Arabic, and that a retweet?

If this man is communicating to the people of Egypt, to the Arab world, to people who follow Islam, surely you would expect to see a large amount of tweets in Arabic with the odd English tweet mixed in

and came to this conclusion:

That’s why Mr. El Haddad’s tweets are not in Arabic. If you consider how easily the west bought the Hamas narrative I can see why he would be sure to tweet “facts” in a language that the lazy western press could understand but the majority of Egyptians would not.

Well this morning I saw the following tweet from him:

And I thought: Gee I wonder if he is playing the same game today. Let’s see if we can find any tweeting in Arabic today in his stream?

So I took a screen shot of the current stream starting with this tweet

and paged down looking for the first Arabic tweet on his stream.

It took 20 pages but there was one in there:

hd1hd2

From July 3rd!

So it seems Gehad El_Haddad is back to his old game tweeting out the Muslim Brotherhood line in the hope that the Western media doesn’t spot the scam.

Well I shouldn’t worry after all if a mere blogger like me can spot it, I’m sure the rest of the major western media can do the same, after all look at the replies to the base tweet I cited

hd3

Four of the five replies came from Arabic named accounts and rebuked him, only one supported what he said. So who IS that Mr. Kirpatrick, the Arabic person who is alone in retweeting a Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece. I mean who is foolish enough to fall for a guy like this?

Oh The New York Times, that explains it.

Olimometer 2.52

I remain $177 short for a full paycheck for the week. If you want to support someone who apparently not as easily taken as the NYT simply hit DaTipJar below.

Spengler’s article quoted by Glenn last night pointed out something critical about the situation in Egypt concerning the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Saudi Monarchy.

Egypt’s people embraced the military because they remember that the military used to feed them. In fact, the military probably can alleviate the food crisis, because — unlike the Muslim Brotherhood– Egypt’s generals should be able to count on the support of Saudi Arabia. Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz congratulated Egypt’s military-appointed interim president on Wednesday night, while the United Arab Emirates expressed “satisfaction” at the course of events.

Why would Saudi Arabia, the land where so many of the radical Mosques in the world have been funded from, a land where the Muslim Brotherhood gets so much green cheer their demise? Spengler continues.

The Saudi monarchy hates the Brotherhood the way Captain Hook hated the crocodile: it is the only political force capable of overthrowing the monarchy and replacing it.

The Saudi Royal family is famous for funding Radical Islam, for enforcing strict Islam on others, but having quite a few members who are known to enjoy shall we say “the good life”. All over the world, due to their wealth they get deference and the best of everything

They’ll finance Islam, including radical Islam elsewhere as long as it’s not imposed on them personally.

In a sense the Military in Egypt is the same. Like the Saudi’s they have a comfortable life, they have physical power as a military & financial power due to a commodity. The commodity that provides that power is not tangible like the oil that the Saudis use to grease others, but inertia.

Egypt’s army has been highly subsidized and equipped by the US since Sadat made peace with Israel. The two generations of US money have made it a comfortable place for generals and their families.

Of course being a military they might be expected to, you know, fight someday and via Stacy McCain Ladd Ehlinger tweeted something rather…interesting concerning the Muslim Brotherhood and Egypt’s military via the Irish Times.

Army concern about the way President Mohamed Morsi was governing Egypt reached tipping point when the head of state attended a rally packed with hardline fellow Islamists calling for holy war in Syria, military sources have said.

At the June 15th rally, Sunni Muslim clerics used the word “infidels” to denounce both the Shias fighting to protect Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the non-Islamists that oppose Mr Morsi at home.

Mr Morsi himself called for foreign intervention in Syria against Mr Assad, leading to a veiled rebuke from the army, which issued an apparently bland but sharp-edged statement the next day stressing that its only role was guarding Egypt’s borders. emphasis mine

The game, however, is really given away by that last bit. The Army’s only role is to guard Egypt’s borders?

That might sound innocent enough but such a role means one important thing. That role specifically precludes a war on Israel.

It may be hard to enjoy the good life if you are fighting in Syria and maybe killed but it’s even harder if a war with Israel, which the Radical Islamists would love to see, takes place.

You see War with Israel means Israel’s Air force tends to bomb you, Israeli Army tends to decimate you and Egypt tends to lose large swaths of land that have to be won back in negotiations. When things like this take place the populace gets angry and needs someone blamed. Since a loss in war is normally blamed on the army that fights it, almost certainly the highest surviving ranks would be the target of the people’s wrath. Good bye comfortable life for them and their extended families that they are supporting.

That tends to adversely affect your bottom line.

I approve of Egypt’s military booting out the Muslim Brotherhood as I approve of stopping radical Islamists whenever possible, but let’s not sugar coat this. The military in Egypt is interested their own comfort and survival. Morsi and the Brotherhood became a threat to them so he was out but I don’t doubt for one moment if they considered it more to their advantage to keep Morsi they would have ignored the people as long as possible.

If the military is wise rather than count on the house of Saud they will make sure some of their wealth is used to feed the people. It’s not only the right thing to do, but it’s the surest way to keep and retain their power and the friendship of the people.

Update: I’ve just GOT to show you this twitter exchange I sent out this tweet to promote this post:

My suggestion produced a tweet I found hilarious

 

Me, an “Obama boy”? Now That’s Funny.

Incidentally after a few tweets we got along famously but that’s classic. From now on whenever I’m attacked by the left I might just use this tweet to give e “Obama boy” credentials, if the MSM sees it they might even say: “He’s one of us” and invite me places.

Friday has come I suspect a lot of my readers are on vacation, unfortunately the mortgage bill doesn’t get a day off. I still need 9 more people kicking in $20 to get me to my first full paycheck in weeks.

It would be very good to get July off to a good start but that’s up to you.
